[Arizona Sports] D-backs OF David Peralta scratched vs. Padres with back tightness

“Left fielder David Peralta was scratched due to lower-back tightness, the team announced.”

[] These players deserve a spot in the All-Star Game

“When Brent Strom left the Astros to join the D-backs as pitching coach, his former co-workers told him that if Gallen didn’t win a Cy Young under his tutelage, then Strom should be fired. That’s the kind of respect that Gallen gets from opposing teams. The right-hander has had two subpar starts, but outside of that, he has once again pitched outstanding for the D-backs. — Steve Gilbert

[] Here’s the latest Pipeline Prospect Team of the Week (6/13-6/19)

“Through three professional seasons, Fletcher has been a constant riser for the D-backs, and now he’s knocking on the door to the Major Leagues. In his latest stellar week, the outfielder posted a pair of three-hit games for the Aces against visiting Oklahoma City, kicking off the series with a 3-for-4 Wednesday performance that featured a homer and a triple. Fletcher not only racked up five hits in his final two games of the week but also displayed a steady eye with six walks against only two strikeouts. The former Arkansas Razorbacks standout conquered Double-A earlier this year with a .346/.408/.591 slash line in 32 games. Through his first 26 Triple-A games, Fletcher has been even better, batting .363/.438/.588.”
